I like this one, but I think the "download now!" should be replaced with 
something like "get started!": a web framework is not something you 
"download & install" like e.g. Firefox.

To "get started" I would put up a simple page with a bullet list where 
in a few points the reader has to learn: what is catalyst, what benefits 
it brings to web developement, how to install it, then point to the 
first, simple tutorial which will get its feet wet.

Just 2 cents.
